I am so happy to tell you this exciting news! We went to an organic local dairy today and bought a Jersey heifer! She is a little over 6 months old. We are also going to buy a cow in milk from this nice man as soon as we have the barn built. I can't believe it, I will finally have a cow that is actually milking. In the mean time we are going to raise this young one up and she can help the sheep mow the pasture.
I don't have any photos of her yet. The farmer is going to bring her to us this week sometime. I will take photos of her then and share them with you.
In other news, we have 3 new baby ducks! White rose hatched out 3 eggs. I will get photos of them up too. We should be having some Dark Cornish hatch out soon. We have two hens sitting. I thought we would have a bunch of babies, but Ed tells me the one is only sitting on one egg and the other has two. Then we have in the hen house a Black Australorp sitting on 6 eggs and a Speckled Sussex that has 4 eggs.
So far the turkey hens haven't gone broody on us. We had one act like she was going to, but gave it up.
Stay tuned for more photos and a drawing coming soon.
